This low-rank first loop clear was all I could find: part 1, part 2

Yeah that was pretty much what most of us had to do tactically to go for the distance as opposed to highscore.

Just got this game after seeing how it plays in MAME (unintended slowdown, bullets behind enemy sprites). This is great fun, luckily a lot easier than Daioh it seems.

Battletoad - 5,807,070 - 1-6-? - PS2

Risked a high-rank play and got this. Am I doing something wrong? This is only my 2nd credit on the PS2.

Good one. :lol:
Was just wondering. I mean that I'm so high in the scoreboard after a few plays. Plus in Daioh I would never have gotten to stage 6 so fast with collecting every kinds of stuff. Rank and/or general difficulty is a lot milder here. Still a problem, so I'll keep it low from now on, don't worry.

I almost doubled my previous highscore with my latest attempt. :lol: Been playing Shienruy again for a few days and it really paid off:

Battletoad - 13,004,730 - 2-5-1 - PS2

Finally 1CCed after some hard struggles. (The previous run ended mercilessly in stage 1-4...) I barely beat the final boss on my last life even though I gained another extend while fighting him. Didn't notice the extend, so it was a very exciting fight with lots of adrenaline! In the 2nd loop I decided to pick up every point item and risk high rank since I thought I wouldn't get that far anyway. Somehow I still was lucky enough to get to 2-3 without any further misses and even to get to 2-5 after a few more luck dodges.

Now back to Homura!

By the way: Kollision's awesome 14 million score still isn't on the board (see bottom of page 2).

Posting a personal best in Shienryu. Nothing compared to the last few posts, but here's to hoping I get the first loop clear soon!

EmperorIng - 5,948,530 - 1-7-5 - SAT

So, you shouldn't be picking up score chips in order to keep rank down? From what I've gathered, high bomb count (and chip collecting) really affect rank. This will be good to know as I nudge closer to the clear.

Got lucky on this one. Stage 3 dropped an extend right after I got the score extend.

Zeether - 4,284,480 - STV

Non-PS1 version

Perikles - 24,431,390 - ALL - MAME Plus 0.168

Spending time with Daioh helps a lot for Shienryu, the nastier sections in particular are very similar. Would've been better not to die so many cringeworthy deaths on the final boss in the second loop, then again I got very fortunate with all the extends and shan't complain. I'm pretty sure the emulation and the speed are accurate, please tell me if you spot something weird (outside of graphical irregularities and the fact that a small section from the right side of the screen is missing for some reason; doesn't happen while you play...).

Great game as well, by the way, I'm sure that friends of moreso modern games will also enjoy it what with the higher bullet count and slower speed compared to Daioh.
